Adani launches joint venture for renewables-powered data centers


India’s Adani Enterprises and US-based data center operator EdgeConneX today announced a 50:50 joint venture to build a green data center platform in India.

The JV will build a network of hyperscale data centers, starting with Chennai, Navi Mumbai, Noida, Vizag, and Hyderabad. Development and construction at these sites have already begun.

The partnership will leverage Adani’s expertise in full-stack energy management, renewable power, real estate, and managing large infrastructure projects.

EdgeConneX, as a technology-driven global data center provider with 50 facilities in over 30 markets, will provide its expertise in rapidly building out and operating data centers around the world.

In addition to full-scale data centers, AdaniConneX will also develop a portfolio of Edge data centers strategically located throughout India that will support the need for more proximate capacity. These Edge sites are designed and planned to scale with demand and become full-scale data center campuses easily.  

Importantly, this pan-Indian platform of hyperscale and hyperlocal data centers will largely be powered by renewable energy.

“In Adani, we have the ideal partner in India,” said Randy Brouckman, CEO of EdgeConneX. “They possess the necessary capabilities and unique expertise in India required to build out critical digital infrastructure that can best support our customers across the entire country. We look forward to investing in the digital economy of India and meeting our customers’ needs throughout the region in collaboration with Adani.”

“India currently has one of world’s largest data subscriber population and to address the need for a reliable infrastructure to support Cloud, content, network, Internet of Things, 5G, artificial intelligence and enterprise requirements, data centers are a fundamental infrastructure need of a nation. The Adani Group brings to the table a unique combination of green power, real estate expertise, access to undersea cable landing stations, and several nodes across the country that will serve as edge locations,” said Gautam Adani, Chairman of the Adani Group.
